I am an Extension Specialist and Researcher at K-State with responsibilities in the pesticide application area. My major emphasis is to develop extension programs and conduct research to benefit the application of agrichemical materials by aerial, commercial and private ground, turf, ornamental, and roadside applicators. A major focus of this work involves evaluating technologies associated with improving the efficacy of pest management materials while minimizing spray drift. The development of computer training modules for pesticide application education is a high priority. I also evaluate technologies used for site-specific pest management and assist in the adaptation of such site-specific practices.
